thank you for joining r t it's the last day of the month on karen broadcasting to you from our studio in moscow well greek journalists have walked out on their jobs angry at what they see as government censorship and changes to labor laws this follows the suspension of two t.v. presenters after they criticize the interior minister on air and denounced police for beating up activists during protests r.t. contributor iranian says it's not the only thing straining relations between the government and the media. millions that tension between their relationship with government and the journalists let couple days ago we saw that mr vaxevanis who is a popular journalist investigative journalist in greece was arrested because he was keep out least the. guards released their wages cold with more than two thousand. people who have money in debt was it
a nice recent bank this least it is sad that it was event to this then the finance minister mr up on sunday no but he never gave it gave it to the government to the responsible to their sponsible people to investigate what's going on so mr fox about his fung that police and decided to publish it and he was arrested for that reason so government was blamed for a sensor see it because it is not supposed to both to have information for example and not been published many journalists even man simple people say that means their proposals are being mooted then finds ministers to be are wasted and not this journalist who revealed the truth sociologist but i get this so theaters today's protest action could help free opera pouring in greece which is tightening its grip on the media. it's a big welcome sign there's the day to strike by journalists. because
if you combine government attacks and the fact that most major media outlets in greece are run by big corporations you have a problem in wilkinsons information in greece and i think also think that is that it is a necessary reaction under resistance larry lottery tarion from the part of the government kept telling the press freedom is one of the worst things still have in that country especially in that country where what we most need is male it's knowledge information and an open debate on identity if you don't have an open debate tentative to the current crisis then you simply have to follow whatever policies are being dictated was bad the so-called. homeless without power transport and a coastal disaster zone millions in the northeastern u.s. are now counting the cost of the deadly storm you know barack obama and mitt romney
swapped campaigning to pitch and with relief efforts especially their electioneering was suspended but as the c. confidant reports that's not how it looked to some. this was the utah pursue pry it's negative. carol i think there's. a hurricane sandy crashing on shore i've never seen anything like this i'm at a loss for words to describe what the storm could do but there's no loss for words on the campaign trail and on the eastern coast of our nation a lot of people are enduring some very difficult times the storm that wreaked havoc on america's east coast is wreaking confusion in the last critical days of a tight race for president so how do you run for office about seeming insensitive to a national tragedy the candidates are certainly doing all they can to look like they aren't trying to score political points but their actions tell a different story president barack obama canceled his election rallies and returned to washington to focus on the storm. election will take care of itself next week
leaving vice president biden to campaign on his behalf. one of the perks of running for president while occupying the white house is being able to make high profile visits like this one america's whether we are standing behind you and we're going to do everything we can to help you get back on your feet it means coming across as a president on the job which certainly helps when it's a job you're reapplying for the president been in close contact with fema. and all the agencies of course obama is the president with his advisors say means he needs to focus on the crisis at hand but in terms of how it affects the election i don't think anybody really knows obviously we want unfettered access to the polls but it's a choice that doesn't sit well with some political opponents you'll notice he's counseling his troops over the hurricane he did not cancel his trip over benghazi. and then those republican presidential contender mitt romney so far he stopped sending fund
raising e-mail isn't affected states he used his campaign bus for relief efforts and put up a blog with the weather related advice he's also scrap schedule campaign events only it seems there are some fine print involved this may look like romney's campaigning in ohio a key swing state but his advisors say that's not the case the so-called victory rally was canceled out of sensitivity. instead of the campaign insists this is a hurricane relief a vent canned goods came hand in hand with anti obama t. shirts there was music and theme songs and those attending the supposedly nonpartisan event were treated to a video about romney getting america stronger that's what american president has to do. asked by a reporter whether this blurred the line between storm relief and politics romney's top strategist replied i agree i don't know how it happened people over politics or or politics. people it's certainly difficult to tell now we may be impossible to
completely stop campaigning in the middle of a closely contested race but then why make the pretense of doing so it seems that both candidates could use a little bit of this age old advice say what you mean mean what you say and do what you say you'll do lucy calf and r.t. moscow. and you can head to our to dot com for the latest updates on what's happening in the areas affected by superstorm sandy as well as the election and next monday on the eve of the crucial vote will bring you another live debate between the alternative third party candidate choices for the white house. we both agree we agree we have to bring the tax rates down i felt the same as the president did governor romney i'm glad. you agree let's get back to something the president i agree on and you tube you agree that the voters have a choice perhaps you wonder who to vote for whatever romney and obama agree on so many things remember you do have other options come november sixth tune in to see the second round of debates between the major third party candidates right here on
r.g.p. . for years british intelligence has been working to safeguard national security against threats such as terrorism and espionage but the secretive nature of their work sometimes gives rise to suspicion of extreme tactics charge getting innocent people are probably boyda reports now on one claim that intelligence agents have to resort to to persecute rather than to protect. somali born mahdi hashi had grown up in the u.k. from the age of five he was a british citizen until this summer when the twenty three year old went missing and his family found out that the home office had stripped him of his passport for allegedly being involved in islamic extremism his parents are distraught they say that mahdi is an innocent victim of a british intelligence plot or because he refused to work for m i five all i can see is that the he's a muslim and believes and he's a practicing muslim but being
a muslim is not being an islamist. that's what that's all why he's being victimized this is the quiet north london community center where mehdi hashi worked back in two thousand and nine it was then that he and four of his muslim colleagues say that they were approached and harassed separately by security agents it's came that m i five threatened to label them islamic extremists if they refused to become informants for british intelligence campaign is raising awareness for maddie's plight and said that the constants threats made by british intelligence made life so unbearable that he left the u.k. they were trying to offer him a job saying that you know effectively you're an extremist we know you're the only way out of this is for you to come and work for us to come and help us these will become tactics that were being used because it's all somali origin this is a purely racist profiling policy of the british government and particular security
agencies marty had been living in somalia for the past two years taking care of his grandmother and raising a son of his own but several months ago he disappeared leaving his family in despair my son is missing this summer this summer but i don't know if you know if you lived or died and almost here. we are very. family the only information the hashi family have now comes from a man who contacted them to say that he'd been in prison with matty in djibouti and he told us that he had been fingerprinted and d.n.a. has been taken from him and then. contacted they found out that he supports this in the conduct of the british consul and the british consulate see that we have go to the movies or this decision from him and then the americans took him to. somewhere we don't know they don't know but they fear he's being held at
a camp in djibouti and a tourist us anti terrorist base where he may be the victim of an american rendition program in which suspects are unlawfully taken to third party states to be illegally detained and tortured the hashi family want on says to simple questions like what the allegations are against maddie where he is located and whether he's even alive but when it comes to matters of intelligence they're faced with a wall of silence lawyers acting on behalf of the hashi family have received just this response from the government it has been the policy of successive governments neither to confirm or deny speculation allegations or assertions in respect of intelligence matters this policy is maintained and accordingly the secretary of state can neither confirm nor deny the allegations made on behalf of your client. these cases a classic case where profiling and you know kind of almost ludicrous policies with
. this war on terror result in an innocent individual helpless young man effectively having their life ruined campaigners say that by stripping maddie hashi of his passport the british government has effectively washed their hands of his case leaving his family to continue the search for answers about their now stateless son. r t london. pro or from perth pro-reform rather protesters are defying the ban on rallies and press demonstrations are reported any capital with human rights groups closely watching how the authorities react details after the break. it's perched atop a jaw drop and the view from the kremlin stretches as far as the eye can see. for
